Cellist Jan Vogler: Why I work with a comedian

The influential German soloist and intendant talks to Zsolt Bognar about growing up under Communism and choosing to work with an American comedian. You see it here first, as usual:


  • MIke says:

    When you hear him play, you realize Jan Vogler himself is somewhat of a comedian.

  • David K. Nelson says:

    Somehow I do not think of Bill Murray as a “comedian,” but as an actor who for sure has acted in funny sketches, made wonderfully comedic films but also some serious ones. But not a joke teller.

    Vogler’s CD of duets with violinist Mira Wang (they round up the usual suspects: Ravel and Kodaly and Handel/Halvorsen, but there is also a marvelous change of pace with Hanns Eisler’s raffish duet) is beautifully played and recorded. Highly recommended.
